I usually hate these ‘you know you’re…’ things

But this one rang pretty darn true, even for a transplant.

You’re from Colorado if—-

You’ll eat ice cream in the winter.

Why the heck not!?

When the weather report says it’s going to be 65 degrees, you shave your legs and wear a skirt.

I know I do! :D

It snows 5 inches and you don’t expect school to be canceled.

My inlaws in VA tell of school cancellations on threat of snow, LOL

You’ll wear flip flops every day of the year, regardless of temperature.

i hate flip flops!

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people’s. And then you make fun of them.

Accents are funny!

‘Humid’ is over 25%.


Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the mountains.

Mine still sucks. But the mountains do help.

You say ‘the interstate’ and everybody knows which one.

I still like saying, “Take 25 south” instead of my trusty CA, “Take THE 25 south”

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

Wasn’t here as a kid, but it is funny to see Superman in a coat

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don’t think Coors beer is that big a deal.

I’ve never thought it was. i mean really? Coors? Why not PBR? Or for that matter, water, isn’t about the same thing?

You went to Casa Bonita as a kid.

Shoot, i’ve been in the last two years!!! Cliff Divers FTW

You’ve gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.

My car at least is 4 wd

You always know the elevation of where you are.

’tis true

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it’s going to snow tomorrow.

ha ha

You don’t care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile High.


Every movie theater has military and student discounts.


Everybody wears jeans to church.

We wear them everywhere else, why not?

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on TV.

and my dogs are named Terrence and Phillip, no lie!

You know what a ‘trust fund hippy’ is, and you know its natural habitat is Boulder.

who doesn’t love hippies!

You know you’re talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches, not Six Flags.

Still haven’t been, is there a day when they don’t allow teen agers? :)

A bear on your front porch doesn’t bother you.

This must be those Evergreen people, cuz I know I’d shat a brick if there was a bear on my front porch in Downtown.

Your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is beating the heck out of the Raiders.


You’ve been to the original Chipotle near the DU campus on Evans.

unless is 1000% not the same as the others in the franchise, I’ll still pass.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.

I’ve done that. poor little mole hills.

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels ‘sticky’ and you notice the sky is no longer blue.

Yeah that does happen to me from time to time.
